Our on-farm apprenticeships provide a solid foundation in sustainable agricultural practices.
Founded in 2007, our apprentice program is designed to provide a solid foundation in regenerative agriculture and additional training in managerial skills for aspiring farmers with some previous experience. Each year, we welcome a new cohort of apprentices to our Farm in Cold Spring, NY for an 8-month Vegetable Apprenticeship or Livestock Apprenticeship. Through a combination of classroom and in-field instruction, apprentices gain experience with the broad array of skills needed for success in managing a regenerative farm. We have trained close to 50 aspiring young farmers to date, a majority of whom have continued careers in agriculture and local food systems.
The Glynwood Farm Apprenticeship begins in mid-March and ends in mid-November. We begin accepting applications for the new year in the fall, and interview on a rolling basis.
We have filled our 2020 Apprentice positions. Please consider revisiting our Apprenticeship offerings in the fall!
